how about asbetos
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I thank you sir I think that will do it but was there asbestos to
Expert:  P. Simmons replied 4 years ago.
That case was from 1960-61...but if you can show symptoms that are consistent with agent orange exposure, you can use that case to support yours.

Now, for asbestos...you will need to show symptoms consistent with asbestos exposure. I found this

That suggests that there certainly was asbestos used in the construction of the military bases
